A program for budding art connoisseurs ages six months to four years.

First Tuesday of each month at 10 am, 11 am, and 1 pm.

Registration Required.

Join the Kluge-Ruhe Aboriginal Art Collection for this two-part early visual literacy program for children ages six months to four years. The first twenty minutes will feature a brief tour focusing on basic elements of visual art and ways to further stimulate visual and interpretive development in young children. According to early childhood development studies, infants and toddlers are attracted to high contrast visuals, bold images, and colorful objects, making Aboriginal art the perfect starting point for your child’s art education. The last twenty minutes will feature multi-sensory structured play for children aged two to four led by Kluge-Ruhe museum education staff, while babies and caregivers enjoy social play in the gallery with visually stimulating toys.

Strollers and crying babies welcome! To register for the next Tots & Dots, visit and choose the best time for you and your child.
